Santa Barbara Triathlon

This longstanding local tradition draws competitors from up and down the Central Coast – and this year it has gone virtual! Participants can complete the triathlon at any location and at their relative leisure: indoors or outside, day or night. They can use a stationary bike or road bike; treadmill or trail; a river, ocean or swimming pool. They can complete all legs consecutively, one-per-day or whenever it works for them within the specified time period. As the annual Presenting Sponsor, Montecito Bank & Trust enjoys rallying with the community to support the triathletes that participate in this beautifully scenic and fun event along Santa Barbara's coastline, which also helps benefit local nonprofit organizations.

This year’s beneficiary selection was a natural choice for Montecito Bank & Trust and the Santa Barbara Triathlon as Sansum Clinic is playing a critical role in our community’s response to COVID-19. Sansum Clinic is a multi-specialty medical group that provides the full spectrum of high quality outpatient care to patients throughout all stages of life. They are working closely with the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department to ensure they have a structure in place to effectively reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Sansum Clinic has been involved in the Santa Barbara Triathlon in a handful of different ways, including as a sponsor of the Medical Tent. A number of Sansum Clinic physicians and staff members have participated in the Triathlon and will compete in the virtual event this year.
